Sels began his childhood career at Kontich, but moved to Lierse when he was seven years old. He joined the first team in 2010 and hasn’t looked back since. Sels took over as the starting goalkeeper after Eiji Kawashima moved to Standard Liège in the summer of 2012. He saved a penalty in his first game in the First Division, against Gent, on July 29, 2012. He was dropped to the second team at the start of the 2013–2014 season after refusing to sign a new deal.

Sels announced on December 31, 2013, that once the transfer window opened, he would finalize a transfer to KAA Gent. Because Frank Boeckx’s contract was set to expire at the end of the season, he would take over as the starting goalkeeper. Sels made his AA Gent debut against K.V. Kortrijk in the Belgian Cup quarter finals on 14 January 2014. After penalties, he assisted AA Gent in qualifying for the next round, with the game ending 1–1 on aggregate.

Sels was instrumental in KAA Gent’s victory in the Belgian Pro League in 2014–15, their first national title in the club’s history. AA Gent qualified for the 2015–16 UEFA Champions League thanks to this victory.

Sels made an impressive Champions League debut, saving an Alexandre Lacazette penalty to help his side earn a 1–1 draw with Olympique Lyonnais. He was named Best Goalkeeper of Belgium 2015 on January 13, 2016.

Sels signed a five-year contract with Newcastle United on June 29, 2016, for a reported transfer cost of £6.5 million. On August 5, Sels made his Championship debut for Newcastle against Fulham. Sels had a four-game streak of clean sheets from August 20 to September 13. Newcastle fans slammed Sels for enabling Aaron Tshibola to score a late equalizer at Aston Villa on September 24.

Despite getting manager Rafa Bentez’s support during the week, Sels was replaced in the starting lineup by Karl Darlow against Norwich City on September 28. His removal from the lineup drew a lot of attention in his home country of Belgium. Sels got the start in Newcastle’s next League Cup match, keeping a clean sheet in a 6–0 victory over Preston North End on October 25.

Sels joined Anderlecht on a season-long loan on June 22, 2017. He appeared in a total of 37 games for the club.

Sels was sold to RC Strasbourg Alsace for £3.5 million on July 27, 2018. Since then, he has made a total of 117 appearances for the club, starting every league and tournament he has played in.
